kde reset
ok, well i figured if i deleted the kde folder in my /home that it would reset and give me the default kde settings. well it did but i also wanted my kicker to be reset how can i do that so i can get the default of the kde taskbar ie: the icons and layout like it was a fresh install.

edit: is there something i need to say or describe better for someone to reply? btw i am not asking for a way to restart kicker, but a way to delete the current configuration so that it sees its missing a config and then writes a fresh new one. short from reinstalling i know there is a way to do this. i've already tried rm -rf .kde* maybe i need to delete more files/folders ? i dunno. but i finally got a working kde that isnt limited like it is in drake 10.1 ie: missing looknfeel settings, broken icons. i figured i'd install debian again after many years, last time i used debian it was 2.2r6. ok long story short i have my /home in a different partition so i could easily share it. well during this install i opted not to format this for the above reason, and when i boot up i noticed it also saved my taskbar settings which i didnt want. i figured it would only save my desktop ie: url's and config for themes/colors not the kicker. so i know this is a poorly formatted post but i figured since nobody is replying i should give a better detailed rundown even though its long and out of order. thank you

i think if you deleted your .kde directory, your kicker should have been reset as well. The only thing i can think of is that you manually reconfigure your kicker if deleting your .kde directory has not made a difference.

I don't know about your install but when I bring up KDE panel (aka kicker) properties, there is a button on the lower left that says defaults. Maybe this will revert to what you want...dunno... afraid to try :eek: myself
Perhaps you have your kicker settings symlinked to something and when you rm'vd .kde* ...(what is kickr format when you login as other users?)

Or. maybe you should just try one of the (super)karamba kickers :cool:

yeah, those karamba kickers are pretty nice, i might try them. i believe the reason it didnt fix my issue is because i was still logged in under that account, im not at home right now but once i do get home i will login under another user and delete the settings again. i also tried the defaults on the panel but that only takes out the colors and what not that you setup. thank you for your replies

well, i logged in under root and deleted the .kde folders in my /home user account and everything is back to normal:) w00t
